Hae Ju is a blind beautiful girl who sees everything through the eyes of her boyfriend, Dong Geon. He is always by her side, describing the world for her. Not having much self esteem, he fails to describe himself properly and lies about his appearance, telling her he in fact looks like one of his high school friends, Jun Ha. However, when Hae Ju regains her eyesight after a successful surgery, Dong Geon can't face the exposure of his previous lie and lies again that he fled to Hawaii for work. Meanwhile Hae Ju bumps into Jun Ha, mistaking him for her boyfriend.

In a way it's nothing special and yet it's special for me.

It's about superficialty. It's about an ugly guy who feels that he doesn't deserve his pretty girlfriend simply because she's pretty. It was okay when she was blind and didn't know but even then he told her that he was handsome. It's interesting to see a guy in a situation in which his looks cause him to feel insecure. I like that the situation isn't revolved by him suddenly turning handsome but that he understand that she loves him despite his looks. That gives it a nice message. It's not just about looks but about what's inside. The handsome guy even loses to the ugly guy.

Personally I don't really find Ryu Seung Beom to be that ugly but I wouldn't call him incredibly handsome either so... yeah.

Well, although it dealt with superficialty it mainly was a comedy and if not for the comedy part I probably would've liked it less. It's really really hilarious. I especially loved Ryu Seung Beom's character and his gangster buddy played by Ahn Gil Kang.

Although there were beautiful and touching scenes, I liked that the comedy prevailed. That's especially worth the mention because Korean comedy movies tend to turn into a melodramatic mess towards the end.

I rewatched it couple of times now and well, I wouldn't call it the best movie ever made but I'm incredibly fond of it.

A blind girl and a man who believes he can protect her from the real world if he lies to her about the reality they are sharing together.

What if you are blind or your perceptions are slightly impaired temporarily? What if you met the person of your dreams, full of beauty, kindness, consideration, and sincerity at that time? Someone with whom you can always be yourself and just feel comfortable in his presence. What if you two fall in love? And what will happen at the end, when you regain your sight and discover that the truth in different from your vision and the person you love is not perfect, but has his own flaws and is not as beautiful as you thought he would be? Was his beauty the only reason you loved this person? If not, then can you overcome reality and accept his real self? These are the questions the hero/heroine in both films has to answer.

The beginning of the story is really cute ^^. Everything seems to be so beautiful, but when I saw it with Dong Geon eyes it was so funny :D I really like Dong Geon and Do Sik and their "Speeding cart murder op'' XD That scene was hillarious.

I did not expect much, but this one was kind of good. Especialy Ryu Seung Beom was hillarious.

The truth to be told I didn't like this movie very much. The characters were annoying and even actors' acting skills couldn't save them. The plot could have been much better and not just him running away from her. I found the ending and Dong Geon & Hae Ju's dating scenes cute though.

I really like this movie because of the funny moments. I didn't expect that kind of end. Not a masterpiece but still good.
